Blank white screen when powered up and wont take pics

My camera was working just fine until my five year old was looking at the pictures in it. The next day we went to take some pictures and upon powering camera noticed that it had just a blank white screen and it would not take pics. Is there any possible way to maybe reset camera and salvage it?

Sadly, most digital cameras don't have a reset button like it older more reliable elders. But, most digital cameras have a "menu" button or a "review" button. If either of these are still working and can be seen on the display screen then your problem lies within the lense or digital shutter. If you can't see anything at all, even the "Menu" or "review" your problem is much more extensive. If so, you can NOT fix this yourself without ruining it more.
I can say that most of the camera shops can refurbish it for you for a lower price. Or you can purchase and already refurbished camera for about half have you paid for the new one.
Hope I helped.

It looks like the image on my lcd is stretched vertically . It wont take pics correctly


This sounds like a common fault which usually means the camera is effectively irreparable: the sensor has failed.

To confirm it, you'll need to check whether photos taken before the fault occurred appear stretched as well. If not, then it's definitely the sensor and as the camera is about four to five years old now the repairs will not be cost effective. If old photos also display with the problem, then it's probably just a faulty lcd screen and they can be replaced but it still may be touch and go as to whether it's cost effective. Either way, although the camera is out of warranty I'd recommend that you contact Canon to see if they'll offer a goodwill repair as it shouldn't really have failed that soon, but at the time it was a relatively low cost model so don't get your hopes up.

Faulty sensors are very common when cameras get to around five or six years old, but some just fail sooner than others and if you live in a warm climate region the the failure can occur sooner. Even if the sensor doesn't fail most digital cameras seem to suffer one or more other faults by the time they're around six years old: they simply don't last as long as many film cameras.

White in all pics


The pictures are either over exposed or there is a large smudge on one of the internal lens elements. A bad image sensor is also possible.

Problem with LCD Monitor


For the initial problem, it sounds like the connection between the image sensor and the rest of the electronics came loose. Not much you can do unless you are comfortable taking the camera apart, and looking for the tiny little ribbon connector that has probably come loose. To get to the image sensor to look for bad connections generally means taking the camera completely apart, not just removing the case. Sorry.

If the camera is 15 months old check and see how you paid for it. Some credit cards offer automatic warranty extension for things bought with the credit card. If the original warranty was a year you might still be covered by an extended warranty if your credit card company does this.

For the people looking for a manual in this thread I found a manual for the 5385 at retrevo.com

Blank screen


Usually it's an lcd burn out where the screen needs replacement. Check the display button if it's just blank then press it to see if it comes on. As far as your friends white screen it not feasible to repair. A good thing to get on any digital equipment is an extended warranty. It does save you in the end when something goes wrong. The limited manufacture warranties are a joke. You should never rely on them.
